A Georgia woman was asked to prove she's female after seeking to fix an incorrect birth certificate labeling her a male for the past 37 years, MyFoxAtlanta.com reported.

"She [the state worker] said I needed to go have a PAP exam, have a doctor write a note verifying you're a woman, and bring it back—notarized," Nakia Grimes, a mom in Clayton County, told the station.
